“We are thrilled to be publishing Michela Mercuri’s collection of short- stories on our list. She is a talented storyteller being able to instantly capture the reader by weaving her stories with an extreme imagination.
Creating character, who at times are everyday people, at other times in science-fiction setting but most of all she takes us in the world of magic.
Michela Mercuri is certainly a contemporary fiction writer with the most understanding of the actual realistic backdrop in making us live those magic worlds as if they were real.”
